    Murray McAllister discovered multiple integer and buffer overflows in the
    XWD plugin in Gimp, which can result in the execution of arbitrary code.
    
    For the oldstable distribution (squeeze), these problems have been fixed 
    in version 2.6.10-1+squeeze4. This update also fixes CVE-2012-3403, 
    CVE-2012-3481 and CVE-2012-5576.
